A bowl of yogurt topped with berries and chocolate crunch topping.

Choco Crunch Yogurt

Makes: 2 cups
Time: 15 mins

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a snacker. Every couple of hours, I feel like I need a little bite to eat. I love any type of snack, but find in the afternoons, I crave sweets, and in particular, chocolate! But because I snack so much, I try to keep things healthy.

That’s why I think Choco Crunch Yogurt makes the perfect treat. The topping, which takes just 10 minutes to prepare, is made with crunchy seeds, plenty of rich cocoa, and just a touch of unrefined coconut sugar. It’s satisfying chocolatey goodness that you’ll be putting on everything, and if you’re like me, eating by the handful!
